Recently I was working on articles for the company I freelance with, writing articles for a printer ink. Shortly afterwards I noticed that several of the advertisements online now showed that site- and the same happened with another site later. While I worked on novel writing information, self-publishing sites kept being advertised. During my Advertising Photography class, my teacher mentioned that a similar instance happened to him.
Apparently advertising is getting better at targeting computers and your recent searches, supplying more direct and useful information directly to the potential consumer. I would like to know what other people’s thoughts are- do you like having more direct ads? Or is this an invasion of privacy? What kind of problems can this bring up, and how does it help advertisers?

In my materials and processing class, our last assignment was refraction- showing bending light waves and such. I wound up shooting dice in a champagne glass filled with water for the assignment, then made it into an advertisment/public service announcement.
After hearing a couple of friends talking about how much money they spent getting drunk and partying (and basically acting stupid), I decided it was time to create an anti-drinking poster. This was the result.
It started out with a class assignment to create refraction- the bending of light. Notice how the bottom dice looks bigger and in strange proportion to the others? They are actually all the same size, sitting in a glass of water with sunlight shining on them. Note, aside from basic levels adjustments and sharping, I only edited the text. The dice have not been digitally edited.
